Our choice for the #cyberpd book choice this year is Who Owns the Learning? by Alan November. We saw this pop up on several lists and we were all intrigued so we checked it out. We think that this book will generate lots of great discussion and help us all to rethink how we currently teach. I am really looking forward to reading this book.
If you would like a little background information on the topics that may be discussed, check out the TED talk below that was given by Alan November. I loved it.
Our #cyberpd event will consist of three parts:
July 3rd: Chapters 1 and 2 - Hosted by Cathy Mere at Reflect and Refine: Building a Learning Community
July 10th: Chapters 3 and 4 - Hosted here at My Primary Passion
July 17th: Chapters 5 and 6 - Hosted by Laura Komos at Our Camp Read-A-Lot
Date to be determined: Final chat about the book on Twitter using the hashtag #cyberpd
